Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are some of the famous people on the planet, each with an illustrious acting career and a set of high profile relationships that kept their names in the press for many years. They are both quite active in the human rights arena, donating time and money to a variety of charities and organizations. The couple formerly known as Brangelina had many ups and downs together throughout the years. They were together from 2005 until 2016 and share 6 children. Balancing careers, parenting, avoiding the paparazzi, and a lengthy divorce, the two have done their best to keep their children shielded from the prying eyes of the public.
As she was getting over her divorce from actor Billy Bob Thornton, in 2002, Angelina decided she wanted to adopt a child. She adopted her first son, named Maddox, who was just six months old and orphaned in Cambodia.
In 2005, Jolie wanted to expand her family even further and adopted her second child, a baby girl named Zahara from Ethiopia. The tabloids, as well as fans, could not get enough of the story, but they had no idea what was waiting for them around the corner.
